    First test of the season

    This year I am starting off using the TF100 kit. I reviewed the numbers through the pool calculator but I thought I would run my numbers by the experts.

    Salt 5 = 1650
    FC 5.0
    CC 0
    TC 5
    Ph 8
    T/A 160
    CH 200
    CYA 40

    Where should I start? I know we need salt but after that I'm not sure which one to start with first.

    Start with pH adjustment then worry about FC and salt.

    May want to consider the process of lowering TA described in Pool School after all else looks good.

    With a SWG you also want to get your CYA up if your pool us clear and you don't need to shock.
